    I never broke the 50 mile marker for the 9 months I had horses last year. I have gained all of a 1/4 mile of circles in the pasture between the three of them so far this year. Lol

    My brother and his gf are coming into town Saturday morning and he wants to ride at some point so I am hoping to get a good ride in then with some mileage. Gotta find a truck and trailer to haul out if we don't just ride more circles on the property..lol

    Phantom, great views you have on those trails! However, when you are climbing uphill I would expect some amazing views. :)

    Fingers crossed to go on a trail ride on Monday (I know, so far away!). The trails are pretty much fixed and ready for riding so if the weather holds out I'll get the green light from the BO.

    Rick, sometimes my horse goes in circles on the trail. She does this when there is something scary. So going in circles is getting ready for trail riding.

    Nancy - my back isn't bothering me - it is my legs. They still are numb, my feet are numb and my legs/feet feel like they are tightly wrapped in vet wrap

    LOL I only did a little over 200 miles in 2013, 2012 was 373 and 2011 was 530 miles. I am hoping to be where I was in 2012 at least. If it would ever freaking dry up in the woods I would ride by myself. I don't want to ride out down the bayou by myself because if there was a problem it would be a long way to walk back. I am never farther than 1 mile from my trailer when I am in the woods!!! I used to rack up some miles in there by myself.

    You did pretty darn good last year considering. 2014 is going to be much better for you, without a doubt.

    I hope so Gunslinger. 2013 was without a doubt the worst year of my life. I know that everyone eventually dies and that no one lives forever. Losing my mom was hard but I still haven't got my head wrapped around the fact that my baby sister is gone.

    I am working on my rehab, took my prescription to the hospital today to start physical therapy. It is at the hospital where my riding buddy cousin works and oddly enough, the physical therapist there is my late sister's nephew! My friend Betty just finished PT with him for a knee replacement and she just loved him. The PT is my brother in law's older sister's kid. I am sure I have seen him at my nieces wedding but I wouldn't couldn't pick him out of crowd!

    I am hoping to get to where I can mount up without a mounting block. I climbed out of the pool today by the ladder and it was hard but I made it!

    No way! Joe beat me in 2012 (where the hell Joe has gone recently is a mystery though.. maybe ayrabs ARE maneaters!! ). I just had a very good 2013 in terms of people being kind enough to let me ride their horses, since Dream was sidelined with injuries.

    I think a lot of the keeping track of distances in this thread is so that people can challenge themselves in terms of personal goals.. be that a single ride of the longest distance they have covered or a season-end goal of a certain amount. And we are all well aware of how life often gets in the way..

    Any AERC ride is technically a competition, but most pioneer rides have a much more relaxed atmosphere, as people are looking to ride successfully multiple days, versus go really fast one day. Nobody is going to look down on you for riding 'just for fun' as most people are there with that exact goal themselves!

    What beautiful, horrible day....my Paint filly is foundering, and I am waiting for the vet to figure out where to put her down.

    The sun is shining just for her.

    Is that the one in your Avatar?


    That is sad that she is too far to recover. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
